Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:16.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/16.0
Build ID: 20121005155445

Steps to reproduce:

Update to Mozilla Firefox 15.0.1; then update to 16.0


Actual results:

Registry Name CurrentVersion for Key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Mozilla\Mozilla Firefox" never not get updated.  Suspect that it was created for key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Mozilla\Mozilla Firefox" since that now has a full parallel-looking tree that appears to be appropriate for version 16.0.


Expected results:

Registry Name CurrentVersion for Key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Mozilla\Mozilla Firefox" should have been updated with 15.0.1, then 16.0.

As a note, this does NOT happen with Windows Servers 2008-R2.  Win 2k8-r2 continues to update the same area of the registry just like it always did.  Perhaps this was a bug introduced when trying to handle Windows 8.
